Joseph Adolph Dugal

While at Work on the Chippewa River Bridge Last Night He Meets Instant Death. Joseph Dugal, a member of last year's common council and a highly esteemed resident of this city, met instant death last night while employed on the repair work being done to the Chippewa River Bridge. It was but a few moments before quitting time the accident happened that so suddenly snuffed out a life. Dugal and Mike Gonyea were putting a needle beam in place beneath the bridge, intending to fasten it for the time being so that the jarring of the bridge at night would not shake it from its resting place. The timber was green and wet and it moved readily on the iron cleats which held it at either end. Dugal was attempting to drive a bolt through it and two similar beams. Perhaps the jar of the blows shook it down or its falling might have been due to other causes; at any rate neither Dugal nor Gonyea was aware that their position was so dangerous. Gonyea saw it fall and shouted to his co-worker to beware but the warning came too late. The timber struck the dead man on the temple and jammed his head in such a manner that the skull was badly fractured.
The coroner's jury last night elicited the information that no one could well be blamed for the accident. Mr. Arnold, who is superintendent of the work, said that eight sets of beams had been put up in the same manner and the one which the men were working last night, and Mr. Gonyea, who witnessed the accident, testified that he could not see that there was carelessness either on the part of the superintendent or employees.  Mr. Dugal was a member of the Catholic Knights in good standing. The funeral will take place tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock from Holy Ghost church.
The funeral of Ex - Alderman Dugal took place this morning from Holy Ghost church under the auspices of the Catholic Knights of which he was a member. The funeral procession was a very long one and among others who attended were Mayor Stanley, City Attorney Jenkins, City Clerk McCallum and a number of aldermen. The funeral services were long and impressive and the.....The church was packed with the friends of the unfortunate man.

Prudent Dugal

Prudent Dugal Dies Sunday Night at His Home on Main Street
Was the First Blacksmith in Chippewa Falls, a Veteran of the Mexican War
There lies dead in his coffin at his home, on Main street, South Side, Prudent Dugal, one of the very oldest residents of the city. His demise occurred Sunday evening at 7 o'clock.
Mr. Dugal was born in Three Rivers, Canada, in 1810, and came to Chippewa when there were but two or three white folks here. The city at that time was the only settlement in the Chippewa valley, and consisted of a blacksmith shop and one or two dwellings located where the farm of Patrick O'Neil now is, five miles north of where the city is located. He came on a visit to Jean Burnett, the oldest settler, and intended to return, but after remaining a year found that the country was destined to become more populated, and he remained. He was the leader of a large colony of Canadians who afterward settled and who were identified with the early settlement of the city. His mind was clear especially upon matters of long-gone history. He remembered very well the early days when he came up the river, and at times was characteristically reminiscent over events and people he knew who pioneered in the Chippewa county and noted with pleasure the changes that had occurred from the early days. Going back into his early career the old man used to talk of the days when he carried a chain and guided surveying parties through the primeval forest,--and he often remarked that he had a pathfinder on the very spot where he helped stake out the city and where he has spent his declining years.
Considering the long time that he has lived his health has been comparatively good to the last, and the evening of his days closed gently in after ninety years of existence. Death was due to the general wearing out of his system.  Mr. Dugal was the first blacksmith by trade who came up the Chippewa river. He was also distinguished as being the only surviving veteran of the Mexican war residing in the county.
NOTE: Prudent Dugal was married in 1863 to Louise McMartin (St. Martin). Four children are surviving members of the family.
NOTE: Prudent was married in 1853 to Louise St. Martin.

Grubb of Stanley, a sister of Mrs. Emma Zillmer and Miss Rena Bauer of Colby, died at the St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chippewa Falls on Sunday, October 11th, which was quite a shock to her many friends in Stanley although an operation, ten days earlier, had revealed that her case was hopeless.

Grubb, who survives her, and in 1897 they took up their residence in Stanley.

As a wife and mother, she was at her best and her greatest heritage to the world is a splendid family.

Nic Meinen

Nic Meinen responded to the call of the Grim Reaper yesterday, and thus another of the old time residents of Tilden is removed from our midst. One by one they are passing - those men and women who came here more than a half a century ago and endured untold hardships to build a home. The town of Tilden then was a wilderness and the principal inhabitants were the Indians, the white settlers living far apart. They were a kind and generous class and it was because of the pleasant disposition they possessed that the Red men kept their places. It was a common thing in those days for a buck to walk into a house without sounding a warning and beg for something to eat. Refusal, perhaps, might have meant trouble, but none were refused, and if there was anything loose around the place that the buck thought he needed more than the settler who had fed him, it was not to be found when wanted. The stories those old settlers told in later years were interesting, happening as they did in our very neighborhood, and it is regretted that they were never written down. And their children can never tell them as well as the old folks. Nic Meinen, the subject of this sketch, and whose picture taken a few years ago, was born at Aierchweiler, Germany, 82 years ago and came to this country fifty-eight years ago, locating immediately in Tilden. He was married here on November 9 (1865) of last years he and his wife celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of their marriage surrounded by their six children and 24 grandchildren. Their children are: William, of Tilden, Peter of Auburn, Mrs. John Stoffel of Auburn, Bernard, Joseph and Louis Meinen of Tilden. The funeral will take place on Thursday morning, services at St. Peter's church in Tilden, which the deceased assisted in launching fifty-six years ago.

Peter Meinen
Source: Bloomer Advance (Thursday, 14 Mar. 1918 Edition)
Our community, especially the Cooks Valley vicinity, was shocked on Wednesday when it learned that Peter Meinen had been in failing health for some four months but he had improved in health and returned home from the hospital and his neighbors and friends thought he was on the road to recovery. The ravages of disease had made such inroads on his strength, however, that kind ministrations and medical skill could avail nothing. Peter Meinen was born in the town of Tilden, Chippewa county on Feb. 19, 1871, Thirty two years ago he moved a few miles into the town of Auburn in Cooks Valley where he has since resided. He was married at the Tilden Catholic church on Oct. 13, 1896, to Anna Stoffel. He is survived by his wife and eight children - seven daughters and one son - all of whom are living at home, to mourn his untimely departure. He was a member of the Catholic Knights and was one of the board of directors of the Vale Creamery, in both of which institutions he took a deep interest. Peter Meinen's sturdy life and cheerful disposition will be greatly missed in our community. He was one of those sturdy, whole hearted farmers whose hospitality and good humor, his integrity and his loyalty, were known throughout the country. His death is a distinct loss to the community and all hearts are bowed in sorrow at his demise. The funeral will be held at the Cooks Valley Catholic church tomorrow (Friday) at 10:00 a.m. and interment will be made in the church cemetery.
